Linux systems administrator: gun for hireI'm a contract Linux systems administrator with 9 years of experience
working with startup companies. My main areas of expertise are in
scalability, high availability and monitoring. Most recently I've been
working with Songkick.com to put in place a new architecture on which we
launched the new version of their site. Before that, I was with Trutap
where we built a scalable platform for mobile social networking.
I'm looking for new challenges with interesting companies. I tend to add
the most value to companies who have an established website built, and
who are expecting a period of growth - taking an existing site, and
building a systems architecture which is fault-tolerant and scalable; as
well as ensuring development staff have access to a development and
staging environment that closely resembles production.
